New today from the Century:

  • Amy Frykholm interviews Tripoli priest Hamdy Sedky Daoud: "Nobody asked us to close our churches or evacuate. We should appreciate
    our Libyan brothers and thank God for their tolerance." (subscription required)
  • Carol Howard Merritt on how we negotiate our notions of self: "We have the tendency to define adulthood, and even ourselves, by our
    employment and our ability to exist independently. But in our difficult
    economic situation, isn't it time to rely on our rich theology and
    redefine our notions of self?"
  • John Petrakis reviews the new film Margaret, finally out from director Kenneth Longergan: "The film was shot in 2005 and is just now being released, following some
    byzantine battles in the editing room. Whichever side you come down on,
    Margaret is nothing if not spiritually ambitious." (subscription required)
  • Bruce Epperly blogs the lectionary: "Although
    visionary thinking and spirituality arise in the context of our present
    situation, their impact reaches far beyond our lifetimes. We dream and plan for
    futures we will not experience."
